The lawmaker, a mother, wants to ban gender-affirming care for transgender even if it kills her own daughter who wants to change her gender. Do you think it’s the right decision?

  • The lawmaker is right, accepting a child's gender transition is challenging for any parent, causing emotional and mental stress. No parent would want their child to jeopardize their future
  • No, care should not be banned as transgenders face and need help with microaggressions, harassment and suffer from significant disparities in mental health issues, substance use, STDs, and violence victimization
  • The lawmaker is imposing her personal life matters onto others by implementing a ban on healthcare for transgender youth

      A Montana lawmaker, who sponsored the state’s ban on gender-affirming care for transgender youth, is facing significant criticism over her recent comments. She stated that she would rather see her daughter die by suicide than allow her to undergo gender transition, expressing concerns about potential manipulation regarding her daughter’s gender identity. When confronted about the increased risk of suicide without access to necessary transition care, she insisted that her daughter is not transgender. She mentioned that she has been dealing with a suicidal daughter for the past three years. The representative from Montana shared her vision for her life and her family, which has been shattered due to her daughter’s decision, leaving her unable to envision a positive outcome.

      Yes, as changing one’s gender is a psychological disorder, it is a mental disturbance. The root cause should be identified as to why the girl wants to change her gender.

      Seeing that I have a daughter undergoing this same exact thing, I think she is an idiot. Her being a law maker has gone to her head. She needs to focus on her own family and figure out where she would even say this out loud much less try and impose her will.and misguided understanding on other families who do deal with this daily and don’t want their children to die. FU is what I would say to your face and you need some major counseling and deal with your own feelings and family before making laws affecting others. Deal with your own personal crap first! And stop hating your own child you’re sick and you’ll regret your words.

      Children with mental disorders including Gender dysphoria / delusions and body image disorders need care with the informed consent of the Parents / legal guardians. Age of Consent and mental competence are essential component for all medical care, and this is being entirely deliberately ignored. It is like saying that an 12 years old (or at any age) with Anorexia Nervosa who is 5 foot tall and 55 lbs in weight, just because she thinks that she is too fat, the medical professionals should “affirm” her and do surgery to remove any subcutaneous tissue they can! This is preposterous and NOBODY will even think of it.
      Another meme said: A 5 years old boy claimed that he was a pirate, so he had one eye and a leg removed and will have a hook placed for the hand!
      These surgeries / procedures are nothing other than mutilation and create more mental distress leading to more suicides after the interventions.
      Saying that the “mother would rather see her daughter die” is only bringing extraneous emotional issues to the topic of what medical care should be.
